INSPIRATION:
The art work is inspired by the Chinese myth presented in the poem and painting, "Luo Shen Fu ." At the height of the Wei Jin dynasty, a well known literary figure, Cao Zhi, wrote about the Empress Zhen, known also as Consort Mi. His painting expresses the mystique and beauty of women, a theme that runs through much of his work.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This decorative object depicts the feminine virtue, gentle nature and fortitude of Chinese women. The inner Fong Xian style chipao garment covered with lifelike roses and classical satin neck ties presenting a romantic look. The outer bamboo casing features layer upon layer of lacquered, repeatedly painted and polished to create the rich pattern. This design carefully balances the nature of the materials and play off the contrast between leather and lacquer.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This design features two complementary components, the outer casing and inner sleeve. They can be arranged together or apart, adding decorative touches to any space.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Having actively participate in the field of leather craft over 38 years, we have observed that few has attempt to combine leather with other materials in artistic expressions, especially using lacquer and leather due to their highly specialized nature that takes years of experience to master. By combining the two fields we created a new art form that appeals to modern art collactors.

CHALLENGE:
Cross pollination between leather craft and lacquer, contrast between soft and hard medium, composition and integration. Both materials are unforgiving, making every step of the process is a challenge. Even greater obstacle is to capture the abstract feminine qualities in a physical object, all the while maintaining the integrity of the literary inspiration.
